Hop Along

New Track: "Texas Funeral" - Hop Along

Hop Along are ready to wake the dead with their new track "Texas Funeral." It's their latest single that premiered over at Stereogum along with a Q&A. The band's forthcoming LP, Painted Shut, which was produced by John Agnello, is scheduled for release on May 4 via Saddle Creek.


New Track: "Powerful Man" - Hop Along

Take a listen to “Powerful Man,” the latest song revealed from Hop Along’s upcoming LP Painted Shut, which will be released on May 5 via Saddle Creek. Despite the song’s distressing narrative that depicts Francis Quinlan witnessing a father hitting a child outside of school and her subsequent reaction, the song also carries an all out contagious groove and clean tearing guitar work, playing into her ability to vocally balance beauty and then reaching down and tearing your heart out. Hop Along performs alongside Thin Lips on May 9 at Union Transfer.


New Track: "Waitress" - Hop Along

Check out Hop Along's first single, "Waitress," from their forthcoming album Painted Shut! The record was produced by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., etc.) at Headroom Studio, and will be released on May 5 via Saddle Creek. The band is getting set to leave on tour at the end of this month with another hometown favorite The War on Drugs.


The Deli Philly’s New Year’s Eve Show Roundup

There is too much great local music happening tonight that you can’t possibly cover and see it all. Here’s a roundup of some shows that you should be at to ring in the New Year this evening. A hot one will be newly signed to Saddle Creek, Hop Along, at Johnny Brenda’s for a sold-out show with Thin Lips and roses. The group recently wrapped up its stint in the studio where they’ve been working on their next label album with producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr., etc.) so there should be plenty of new material. Philly indie-rock mainstays Man Man, opening for Gogol Bordello at the E Factory, should be a fantastic show. Our friends at PhilaMOCA will be hosting Mannequin Pussy and the Jawbreaker reunion. A Sunny Day in Glasgow are capping off their holiday run at Boot & Saddle. Shaky Jake and his Killer Bangs crew are taking over Kung Fu Necktie with psych outfit Drone Ranger and stoner metalheads Ruby the Hatchet. And take some swings at batting cages/DIY music space Everybody Hits with The Spirit of the Beehive and Mike Bell & The Movies. And the list goes on and on… Share how you’re spending your NYE?

Hop Along Signs to Saddle Creek Records

The force has been strong with these guys and gal so it comes as no surprise that they've been signed to a bigger record label. Congrats to Hop Along whom are now part of the Saddle Creek Records roster! Their upcoming full-length album is slated for release in spring 2015.
